Big Sky Publishing delivers must-read books across Adult Non-Fiction and Children’s genres.
Our specialisation includes the following areas:

“The Australian Army History Unit is excited to be working with Big Sky Publishing to produce quality titles on Australian Army history. Head of the Australian Army History Unit, Roger Lee, said that the relationship with Big Sky Publishing presented a great opportunity for Army’s rich history to be disseminated more widely to a broader readership. “The Australian Army has some wonderful stories and has played an important role in significant episodes in Australian history,” Mr Lee said. “Big Sky Publishing has shown a strong desire to help us tell those stories and share the Army’s history, its exploits and its people.” The collaboration between the Australian Army History Unit and Big Sky Publishing has already produced some superb books – more exciting titles are being planned.

“We must acknowledge that the Department of Veterans’ Affairs provided a seeding grant to get this book started, while Roger Lee and his team at the Australian Army History Unit took carriage of the bulk of the book’s production, in hand with Big Sky Publishing who brought it to publication. The final product is a credit to everyone who has made a contribution, no matter how small.”
Book Launch “Forgotten Men: The Australian Army Veterinary Corps 1909-1946” by Major Michael Tyquin
By Deputy Chief of Army, Major General Paul Symon, AO
“The Vet Corps book is yet again an excellent example of high quality publishing from Big Sky publishers. While the relationship between Big Sky and Army is still only relatively brief, the quality of the product, the excellent service and the rate of output has already made Big Sky a major player in the Australian Army’s military history program. I would like to congratulate Denny Neave, Sharon Evans and the rest of the Big Sky team on a superb book.”
